Care Tips for Long-Lasting Roses

To ensure your roses remain beautiful for as long as possible, follow these detailed care tips that will help preserve their freshness and vibrancy, allowing you to enjoy their elegance and fragrance for an extended period.

  • Watering: Keep the vase filled with fresh water and change it every two days. Fresh water helps prevent bacteria growth, which can shorten the lifespan of your roses. Adding a flower preservative to the water can further extend the life of your blooms.

  • Trimming: Trim the stems at a 45-degree angle every few days to allow better water absorption. Cutting the stems underwater can prevent air bubbles from entering the stem, which helps the roses absorb water more efficiently. Always use sharp, clean scissors or a knife to avoid crushing the stems.

  • Placement: Place the roses in a cool area, away from direct sunlight and drafts, to maintain their freshness. Avoid placing them near fruit, as ripening fruit releases ethylene gas, which can accelerate the aging process of your flowers.

  • Removing Foliage: Remove any leaves that fall below the waterline in the vase. This prevents bacterial growth in the water, which can harm your roses. Clean water and a tidy vase are crucial for keeping your flowers healthy.

  • General Maintenance: Mist the petals with water occasionally to keep them hydrated, especially in dry environments. Regularly check the water level and top it up as needed to ensure your roses are always well-hydrated.

 

By following these tips, you can enjoy the beauty and fragrance of your roses from G. Rossi Florist for an extended period, making every bouquet a lasting testament to nature's elegance.
